Grand Hotel Excelsior’s prime location is perfect for relaxing by the water or exploring the UNESCO World Heritage site of Valletta.
Sixteenth century fortifications embrace the hotel and its olive gardens, so you will be immersed in histroy form the moment you arrive,
Valletta offers a wealth of sights to explore, from grand Baroque architecture to over 25 churches, all intertwined with quaint cafes and pretty cobbled streets.
Marsamxett Harbour is the northern of Valletta’s two natural harbours on the island of Malta, separated from the southern one – the Grand Harbour – by the Valletta peninsula. The harbour is dedicated to yachting and sailing and also hosts the Msida Yacht Marina. The Grand Hotel Excelsior offers its own yacht marina which is exclusive, to its hotel guests and is home to Malta’s Annual Boat Show.
However if you fancy sightseeing of a different kind, back at the hotel you’ll find a water sports centre - a must for diving enthusiasts.
If you're after a laid back break, simply sunbathe on the pool deck, or take a short boat ride to Gozo, Malta’s beautiful sister island.
